The serpent is the symbol of the new collection by designer Daniela de Marchi. The pieces are made using the "dropage" technique, which has become a hallmark of the De Marchi atelier. Precious metals are combined with enamels and burnished finish to produce a perfect harmony of forms and colour. In this collection, a new shade, Etruscan green, has been introduced for the first time.
Daniela developed the "Dropage" process during her training as a jewellery designer. She describes it as an "alchemical process applied to lost-wax casting." She had her first show in 2000, and now has an atelier in Via dei Piatti, Milan.
